My Experience with Laura Mercier Khaki Caviar Stick Eye Color:
This eyeshadow comes in a retractable pen style packaging which makes it very convenient to use, and of course travel with. There is no hassle of sharpening, which I like. The cap closes securely.
These stick eyeshadows are super creamy and smooth. Out of all the shades I have from this line, there isn’t a single dud for me in terms of their beautiful texture and blendability. Even the shimmery shades do not feel too gritty and are easy to apply. They can be blended with fingertips or a synthetic brush both, hence they are also beginner-friendly. They do set quickly, so it is best to do one eye at a time.
The shade, Khaki, is a gorgeous deep khaki green with specks of golden shimmer which give it a sheen on the eyes. This shade can give a twist to the regular black smokey eye when applied and blended all over the lid. I think this shade of green pairs beautifully with brown/black eyes and makes them pop. This shade would be gorgeous to wear on its own or layer under a gold eye shadow for much more of a multi dimensional look.
Though this is more of a deep color apt for night time wear, I have used this during day time too. It also works great if you want to smudge it on the lower lash line. I like the fact that the shimmer does not cause any fallout and adheres to the lids securely even without a primer. In fact there is rarely any need for a primer with any other of these shades too.
The staying power is amazing. There is absolutely no fading even around 8-9 hours. The shimmer did not travel all over my face. The eyeshadow is easy to remove with an oil based makeup remover.
I absolutely love these Laura Mercier Caviar Sticks. They are so foolproof that even people who consider themselves not good with makeup will find these easy to use. These sticks have amazing staying power and come in a beautiful array of shades. I highly recommend!
Sorry for no EOTD today. 🙁 I wore this eyeshadow on my travels recently and forgot to click pictures in hurry.
